Wolverhampton Wanderers are eyeing a shock move for Barnsley goalkeeper Adam Davies with Stoke City also showing an interest in the highly-rated shot-stopper, according to the Stoke Sentinel.

The former Everton and Sheffield Wednesday youngster is a huge reason why Barnsley have secured a return to the Championship this season, keeping a club-record 21 clean sheets as Daniel Stendel’s side finished second behind Luton Town in League One.

 

Davies was also named Barnsley’s Player of the Year. But the Welsh international could soon be on his way out of Oakwell with his contract set to expire in the summer.

Unsurprisingly, Barnsley are desperate to tie the 26-year-old down to a new long-term deal but the Sentinel reports that they face plenty of competition with Premier League high-flyers Wolves interested in signing Davies on a free.

With Portugal international Rui Patricio established as Wolves’ number one, however, Davies will be fully aware that a move to Molineux will limit his game-time, even if Premier League and even Europa League football would certainly be tempting.

A move to Stoke, however, could see Davies replace Jack Butland while Birmingham, Hull, Bristol City and Brentford are interested too.
